Dylan Talley’s jumper with 10.4 seconds remaining gave Nebraska a 51-50 win over Florida Gulf Coast last night at the Devaney Center. ” I just took a dribble and tried to use the ball screen and make a play. I made it thankfully. It felt really good. We needed that win big time,” said Talley, who finished with a team-high 14 points including four 3-pointers.
Brandon Ubel joined Talley in double figures for the Huskers (5-3), as he finished with 10 points and a career-high 11 rebounds for his first career double- double.
“That’s the best zone we’ve played against- taking the inside away. I thought we got very panicky in the first half,” said head coach Doc Sadler. “At one time I think 10 of our 13 shots were threes. I think this team is trying way too hard. They have to relax and they have to enjoy the game. As I told them in the locker room, ‘you better enjoy every game right now that we can win.’ You go in the locker room and it’s like they’re just taking a big sigh. They got to enjoy it. We do have a good basketball team.”
Sadler has some work ahead for his 5-3 team who is just three weeks away from conference play against Wisconsin. NU overcame a 26-27 halftime deficit while shooting just 18 of 45 (40.0%) from the field.
